Lake Canoe Skills Tandem Intermediate

12 hr Instructional Trip
Available as:

Lake Canoe Skills Intermediate Tandem

The aim is to expand upon the skills and principles necessary to paddle with a partner in open lake waters, to perform skills and maneuvers with greater refinement and demonstrate confidence in an open water environment, and to develop a greater awareness of environmental hazards and how to avoid/react to those hazards.

Activities focus on safety and comfortable paddling on a lake close to the shore. Activities should concentrate on progress, refinement, teamwork and environmental awareness. Paddlers should leave the course encouraged to continue learning and aware of their individual limitations.

The successful intermediate lake tandem candidate is considered an intermediate tandem lake canoeist, capable of performing a variety of land and water-based rescues and more advanced tandem strokes and maneuvers. Maneuvers within the intermediate program require expanded levels of teamwork and greater precision.
